TechHire LA is an innovative job training program
to prepare Angelenos for high-demand careers in technology
with no degree required.


TechHire LA will prioritize services to Veterans with disabilities as well as community members living in the LA Promise Zone.

Between 2015–2020, more than 10,000 new tech jobs are projected to become available in Los Angeles County, with an additional 8,500 jobs opening due to attrition.

TechHire is provided by our partners The Firehose Project and Sabio LA. It is designed with access to accelerated learning options that provide the fastest paths to good jobs—like bootcamps and online options that give people the skills they need in months not years.[i]

    I would really love to be awarded one of these scholarships. I’ve completed thefirehoseproject’s bootcamp prep and been accepted into the program but the cost is out of reach for me.
